Healthy Kids out of school

Healthy Kids Out of School is working with leading out-of-school-time organizations to promote three simple principles: Drink Right, Move More, and Snack Smart. By implementing these principles, out-of-school-time organizations provide millions of children across the country with access to healthy snacks and increased physical activity in their programs, helping build healthy habits now and for a lifetime.
